The Celtics eked out a six-point win in OT over the Wizards, but the close call unleashed something deep inside Kevin Garnett, something about how a team plays and whatever tenuous comparison that may hold to how a cable company operates and the very nature of advertisements, DVRs, and ... ah, we'll let SB Nation's Paul Flannery take it from here. Here's what Garnett had to say postgame, per Flannery's notes:
You can't speed chemistry up. The more you practice, the more you get familiar with each other. There's no hit the fast forward button here. You got Comcast. Some shows you can't fast forward through, you got to let it go through and watch the silly-ass commercials and be pissed, right? This is what this is. Did I just take a shot at Comcast? Fuck it, I did. So what. I'm a Direct-TV guy anyway. Anyway look, this is what this. I'm not helping myself am I? Fuck it, anyway that's what's this is.
Fuck it, anyway that's what's this is. I have no idea how much longer Kevin Garnett will play in the NBA, but however long a time it is, it's not enough.
